(SPERRY, Okla.) The Sperry Police Department requested Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) assistance with a homicide in the 300 block of W. 88th St. North in Sperry. Early Monday morning, Deena Ostoich was found dead inside her boyfriend, Gary Brown’s, residence in Sperry, Okla. OSBI agents learned that Ostoich and Brown had been traveling back from California on March 28 and began arguing. The couple was going to stay in New Mexico, but the arguing between Ostoich and Brown had heightened and they decided to drive straight through to Oklahoma. Ostoich’s daughter was traveling with the couple back from California. She arrived in Tulsa around 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 29. At about 6:45 p.m. Monday night, Brown began calling Ostoich’s daughter asking her to pick up her mom. The calls continued until 11:30 p.m. when Brown told Ostoich’s daughter that her mom was dead. The Sperry Police Department arrived at Brown’s house and found Ostoich inside the residence. EMS was called and Ostoich was pronounced dead shortly before 2 a.m. on March 30. About an hour later, the Sperry Police Department was notified that a vehicle matching the description of Brown’s was located in Tulsa. The Tulsa Police Department notified Sperry officers that the man inside the vehicle appeared to be deceased. The vehicle was registered to Brown. There was no apparent trauma to Brown inside the vehicle. The Oklahoma State Office of the Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death for both Ostoich and Brown.
